Looking to buy

I never thought I would see the day I was looking for a sedan! I made it to 31 years old before it happened. 2 weeks ago I became a father and after 2 weeks of flipping the seat forward I've decided to give it up (at least m-f). I have always liked the looks of BMW's but have never owned one. I was car shopping on the Internet and was shocked at how cheap I was finding 2006 750li fully loaded. But before I took a leap I wanted to find a forum and get some opinions, advice on what to look out for, and I guess a little push also! What are the main problems to look out for? What are the widest wheels I can run staggered? How reliable are they? And where do I look for performance parts? And anything else you guys think I need to know, before I bought my Range Rover and Mercedes I joined forums and asked questions that helped me find the right cars, so I appreciate your help in advance. Thanks!

you're better off looking for a 2005 745Li.

con(s): -you might think the facelift (2006-2008) looks better
-30hp down on power
pro(s): -745 can withstand unlimited abuse
-doesnt have "the gearbox problem" of 06-08 750s
- smoother drive than 750
